Battery - which one?
OK, so today I got nosey in the battery compartment of the spider and what do you know, the tray is almost double the size of the battery in there!
So what battery should be fitted? And if I fitted the much larger battery from my Golf TDI that I only recently bought and so am not keen to sell with the car, would it fry the Spider with too much juice? Would the bigger battery be a drain on the alternator?
It gets confusing because the repair manual describes a 70 ah battery, Eurocarparts recommends a 56 ah battery, there is a 55 ah battery fitted and the big diesel battery is 77 ah. Anyone got any suggestions?
If it helps, there is evidence that a previous owner fitted a bonkers subwoofer and so may have needed to make space by reducing the battery size.
